The Bible


As haink eh gy-kione, ec toshiaght ny bleeaney, mysh y traa ta reeaghyn cliaghtey dy gholl magh gys caggey, dy ren Joab leeideil magh ny reih deiney caggee, as ren eh spooilley cheer cloan Ammon, as haink eh, as ren eh soiaghey er Rabbah (agh duirree David ec Jerusalem) as woaill Joab Rabbah, as stroie eh eh.

And it came to pass, that after the year was expired, at the time that kings go out to battle, Joab led forth the power of the army, and wasted the country of the children of Ammon, and came and besieged Rabbah. But David tarried at Jerusalem. And Joab smote Rabbah, and destroyed it.


As ghow David crown y ree oc jeh e chione, as hooar eh dy beeagh eh talent dy airh, as va claghyn costal ayn; as ve soit er kione Ghavid: hug eh lesh myrgeddin niart spooilley ass yn ard-valley.

And David took the crown of their king from off his head, and found it to weigh a talent of gold, and there were precious stones in it; and it was set upon David's head: and he brought also exceeding much spoil out of the city.


As chur eh lesh magh y pobble v'ayn, as hug eh ad dy obbraghey dy creoi lesh saaueyn, as lesh clein yiarn, as lesh teighyn: er yn eer aght shoh ren David rish ooilley ny ard-valjyn cloan Ammon. As hyndaa David as ooilley'n pobble gys Jerusalem.

And he brought out the people that were in it, and cut them with saws, and with harrows of iron, and with axes. Even so dealt David with all the cities of the children of Ammon. And David and all the people returned to Jerusalem.


As haink eh gy-kione ny lurg shoh, dy vrish caggey magh ec Gezer rish ny Philistinee, ec y traa shen varr Sibbechai yn Hushathite Sippai, va jeh cloan ny foawir, as v'ad er nyn goyrt fo-chosh.

And it came to pass after this, that there arose war at Gezer with the Philistines; at which time Sibbechai the Hushathite slew Sippai, that was of the children of the giant: and they were subdued.


As va caggey reesht rish ny Philistinee; as varr Elhanan mac Jair Lahmi braar Gholiath yn Gittite, cass y shleiy echey va gollrish garmin fidderagh.

And there was war again with the Philistines; and Elhanan the son of Jair slew Lahmi the brother of Goliath the Gittite, whose spear staff was like a weaver's beam.


As va caggey reesht ec Gath, raad va dooinney dy yrjid vooar, va ny meïr as ny ordaagyn echey kiare as feed, shey er dagh laue, as shey er dagh cass; as v'eshyn mac da'n foawr.

And yet again there was war at Gath, where was a man of great stature, whose fingers and toes were four and twenty, six on each hand, and six on each foot and he also was the son of the giant.


Agh tra hug eh yn-lane-fo Israel, ren Jonathan mac Shimea, braar Ghavid y varroo eh.

But when he defied Israel, Jonathan the son of Shimea David's brother slew him.


V'ad shoh ruggit da'n foawr ayns Gath; as huitt ad liorish laue Ghavid, as liorish laue e gheiney.

These were born unto the giant in Gath; and they fell by the hand of David, and by the hand of his servants.
